Overview

Firebrand Training CompTIA Authorized Partner

On this 3-day CompTIA Security+ course you'll learn how to troubleshoot security events and incidents, and operate within applicable policies, laws, and regulations.

Provide infrastructure, application, information, and operational security by identifying and mitigating risks. CompTIA's Security+ is a vendor neutral certification developed with input from industry, government, academia and front-line practitioners.

You'll learn about the following CompTIA Security+ topics:

  • Threats, Attacks and Vulnerabilities
  • Technologies and Tools
  • Architecture and Design
  • Identity and Access Management
  • Risk Management
  • Cryptography and PKI

Firebrand Training is an Authorized Partner of CompTIA. This means that you are guaranteed the highest level of instructor and course material, all of which is officially approved by CompTIA.

Residential or online CompTIA Security+ training course

Firebrand offers both a classroom-based and CompTIA Security+ online course, including everything you need to get certified in record time:

  • Official courseware, labs and practice exams
  • CompTIA Security+ certification exam
  • Accommodation, meals and snacks (for residential courses)

Both are delivered through our tried and tested Lecture | Lab | Review methodology. In this day and age, you get to choose the best one for your needs, and get your certification faster than anywhere else.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor

"Loved the training had a great time."
Shaunesh Thaker, Lockheed Martin. (10/2/2020 (Monday) to 12/2/2020 (Wednesday))

"A very good course, content was covered in great depth in the 3 days, very well delivered.Great training facilities and hotel/food. The only downside was of my own making, as i believe the course was perhaps aimed at more experienced people - but this again was helped by Firebrand/the trainer, by allowing me to take the exam at a later date, once i have had the opportunity to go through the coursework a bit more "
Tim Draycott. (16/12/2019 (Monday) to 18/12/2019 (Wednesday))

"Everything was professional and organised."
T.D.. (11/11/2019 (Monday) to 13/11/2019 (Wednesday))

"I passed so can’t complain."
